Turn old ceiling fan lights into the most gorgeous candleholders

The ceiling fan light is one of the classic elements that comes to mind when thinking about a home from the 1970s or 1980s. The flared glass bulb covers that resemble a flower look dated hanging from a ceiling fan by today's standards. As a result, they've been replaced by more modern designs and can now be found in thrift stores or the garbage. 
However, rather than let the craftsmanship (albeit dated) go to waste, why not find a new use for these lights as candleholders? With a little bit of wood and a half an hour, you can easily craft yourself a cool candleholder.

The basic concept is to place a candle inside each old ceiling fan light holder since it's natural open bulb shape already resembles a glass candleholder.

Rather than just flip them over and stick a candle in them, you can instead use the wood as the base and set the individual lights on top. You could construct the platform out of wood or even use an old wood or plastic box or even a flipped-over plastic tub.

Once you've decorated your platform (optional), secure the candle holders down with super glue.
